ministration Gold Key.

Quad Vote
Amendments to the consti
tution of the Residence As
sociation for Men (RAM) are
now up for approval by the
individual houses in Selleck
Two amendments are be
ing sought. The first would
change parliamentary author
ity from Robert's Rules of
Order to the Sturgis Code of
Parliamentary P r o c edure.
Proponents point out that
the Sturgis Code is the one
used by the University speech
department and is simpler
than the Roberts system.
Amendment two would al
low the election of a vice
president of RAM. The pro
posed vice-president would
also serve as co-orainator
of all RAM committees." In
support "of the amendment, it
is argued that the present
system, . in which the treas
urer has the duties of a vice
president, has often caused
an excessive work load for
the treasurer.
Passage of the amend
ments requires ratification by
twelve of the 16 houses in the
Quad, and ratification in an
individual' house requires a
two-thirds majority of those
voting. The vote should be
completed before the end of
the week, according to PHI
Isaacs, RAM publicity chairman.
